Often tension, stress, differences of opinion, psycho-logical problems, etc. are said to be the causes for the short temperament of a person. It is also said that when a person meditates as per Indian system of Yoga, the person ‘cools down’.
If the heart beat or pulse rate is measured, a person with great anger would show a fast beat, and that is called palpitation. After meditation, the rate would slow down. As a result, people tend to conclude that anger tends to increase the heart beat in a person. Whereas, the truth appears to be the other way around. A person gets his anger only as a result of increased palpitation.
In reality, the rate of heart beat appears to get regulated by the male hormone androgen, secreted by the adrenal glands located above the kidneys. Just before the initiation of anger, ‘abundant’ hormone gets pumped into the blood system, and that instantly increases the rate of heart beat and creates the anger.
A reduced salt (Sodium chloride) content in the body appears to reduce the androgen production. Its increase seems to be increasing the hormone. Almost all of the obese people take reduced salt through their foods. Therefore, they tend to become lazy and lethargic, with relatively a slow heart rate. They normally do not get short-tempered, but stay cool headed, and often indifferent to things that happen around them.
However, in certain under-urinating obese people, if they happen to take mediocre quantity of salt (and not too little), such salt may get accumulated within their body, thus giving rise to short-temperament, palpitation and hypertension. The salt that gathers in the body this way, tends to inhibit the production of the male sex hormone androgen, and suppresses their sex potentials as well.
As opposed to the obese, the Skeletal and Thin people tend to consume large quantities of salt. Yet, they tend to lose most of it through the excessive urinations they void. The remaining, but decreased salt content increases the production of androgen, and that gives this people the rapid heart beat, palpitation. This in turn makes them highly short-tempered.
In other words, almost all the Skeletal and Thin persons, irrespective of their gender difference, are very highly short tempered.
Again, as a result of the increased androgen production, this group of men and women will also be hypersexed.
The inferences from the above observation are that (a) increased retention of salt in the body decreases one’s anger and sexuality, and (b) a decrease in the salt content increases one’s sensitivity and sexuality.
